Subject: Oscar Aleman-great but little known
He's a contemporary of Django Reinhardt, and he performed and recorded in Paris in Django's time frame of the late 30s. I've heard they were good friends, but the documentation is sparse. Oscar was band leader for Josephine Baker, but of 3 recent bios of Baker, he only gets a passing mention of one paragraph. The song on this recording is Gershwin's I've Got Rhythm and Oscar plays it brilliantly. I've not heard a recording by him which I didn't enjoy.
